Background color[edit]

can't see the white spaces between the yellow! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

I agree that the LightYellow does not offer enough contrast with a white background for the group headings.
This is especially a problem since the number of groupings has grown (wasn't so hard to follow back when first converted from Gold [1] Zodon (talk) 21:47, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't object to changing the shading, but I think the gold used in that link looks more orange than yellow, and thus doesn't evoke the standard association (yellow = nervous system) that has existed for a century. Perhaps something halfway between? There's a good list of named colors at Web_colors#X11_color_names. There are a lot of tradeoffs to consider. I've seen people complain about shades of yellow that were too bright. I'd also like to preserve the traditional association between tan/brown and muscles, so I wouldn't want to nudge the yellow too far in that direction. Perhaps we could create a series of color templates (like "Template:ColorNervousSystem1", "Template:ColorCardiovascularSystem1", etc.), so we could embed those colors into the navboxes and infoboxes, and then continue to make subtle adjustments without having to update all the templates? --Arcadian (talk) 23:56, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
It has been proposed that a slightly darker shade of yellow be used for within the navbox (not the title bar -which is already an intense yellow) as the current shade cannot be seen on some computer monitors. Please see discussion here [2]. Unless there are any strong objections I will be making the change shortly, Thanks (talk) 09:22, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
